Musical Worship in the 1600s
This presents a tantalizing glimpse into worship several hundred years ago. A musician will be most interested in that the music, according to the style of notation in those days of Playford in the mid-1600s, is available. We can apply the script and score to hear how they sang in public worship. While not a trend to soon repeat, the glimpse in the past, hearing was was sung and heard in churches so long ago is a rare experience beyond merely reading words on a page.
